Visit Tri Valley used "Spring Tapestry "as the cover for the Inspiration Guide 2015 and added the painting to their collection.

It was an honor to have my painting on the cover of the Guide.
Visit Tri Valley then did me the honor of purchasing the painting for their collection.
 I recently visited their offices to see how they had framed it. And I have to say I love it.
Thank you to  Barbara Steinfeld, President and Emmy Kasten, VP of Marketing for supporting local and original art.  The Tri Valley includes the cities of Pleasanton, San Ramon, Livermore, Dublin, and Danville where I live.
I have lived in Danville 20 years and found new places in the guide. I particularly liked the article about the trails on page 56 of the guide, it has gorgeous photographs that remind me why I can't stop painting our hills.

The guides are at businesses all over the towns and I recommend you pick one up and use it.
